Towers and Customs Square

So called because they flanked the passage to the Customs Square where taxes and tolls were collected. Being already built in 1792, they were erected to decorate and protect the north and main entrance to the city. In the original design of the plan of La Carolina, it was foreseen that equal ornamental towers would be erected at each vertex. Of simple and harmonious construction of neoclassical style, they are characteristic and representative architectural elements of the city, which show the special effort to embellish and dignify the urban planning and architecture of La Carolina due to its status as the Capital of the New Populations.

The houses that surround the Customs Square, and those that, next to the Towers, act as a portico and façade at the entrance to the town, conserve their colonial morphology.
